A Contest Before THE Contest




This is the Contest before THE Contest. (Don't you love a nice little mystery to think about on a warm day in June?) A small little something-something designed to turn unsuspecting souls into knitters.

It's simple, straight forward, unthreatening. Perfectly designed to bestow confidence and a sense of accomplishment on a first-timer. I found this kit at CostCo and if that doesn't tell you knitting is Big Business these days, nothing will.

If you've always wanted to knit but never found the time or the nerve or a good teacher, have I got the contest for you. (Or maybe you're a terrific knitter looking to swell our ranks. Know somebody who could use a how to kit? Then this contest is for you too.)

Send me an email here with the words LION CONTEST in the header and you'll have a chance to win Lion Brand's terrific how to knit kit you see in the photo and copies of A WEDDING IN PARIS and JUST LIKE HEAVEN. (BTW, A WEDDING IN PARIS also features our own Cindi Myers! Two Romancing the Yarners in one handy-dandy anthology.)

Yep, that's all you have to do. Send me an email and I'll pick a random winner on July 1st.

Good luck, good reading, and good knitting!

I think your email link in the last post may have an error. My email keeps coming back to me with an undeliverable message.

Monica, thank you!! I made a typo -- a funny one actually. Instead of "wickedsplitty" I typed "wickedspitty"!!

It's fixed now but I'm still laughing.

Everyone should enter this contest just to get a copy of JUST LIKE HEAVEN. What a fabulous book!

Hi, Carol. I'll make sure you're entered. I don't know what the problem is. I fixed the typo last night and other mail is coming through. If anyone else is having difficulty, the email addy is wickedsplitty@earthlink.net -- or feel free to leave your entry in comments and I'll issue it a # for Randon # Generator purposes . . . ;)

Thanks Barbara. I tried about 6 different times so I appreciate it. It's the book! Well the yarn also, but the book!
